3 Minutes to Live By – “Tweeting”

DeCharlie Schnabellivered by Charlie Schnabel at Austin First Church of God April 25, 2010

In 2006-2007, a guy name Jack Dorsey, sort of by accident, discovered and developed “Twitter”  as a networking tool. Although starting small, there are now over 1 billion hits a month on Twitter all over the world. You can set up a Twitter account and then communicate with your friends called followers.  A message that you might give on Twitter is called a “Tweet.”

There are millions of entities on Twitter– individuals, organizations, universities, political groups, military units, astronauts and just about anyone else that you can think of – and information can be passed quicker than on network television.  Do you know what they call two birds in love?  Tweet Hearts!

As you can imagine, not many preachers use Twitter because a Tweet is limited to 140 characters.  But it’s not too much of a stretch to say that the Apostle Paul might have used Twitter if he had the opportunity. How about a Tweet to the church at Galatia: BEWARE FALSE TEACHERS – JUSTIFIED BY FAITH IN CHRIST NOT RELIGIOUS PRACTICE.

Or the Tweet to the churches in Corinth:  GET UNIFIED! CLEAN UP, LOVE ONE ANOTHER, GET BACK TO BASICS.

Also, the Tweet to Ephesus: BELIEF AND BEHAVIOR.  IT ALL WORKS TOGETHER TO ACCOMPLISH GOD’S PLAN. BE LIKE CHRIST.

Well, a Tweet can only be 140 characters long, so I had better close. Wouldn’t it be wonderful, if the billions of Tweets that are out there included God’s message to be scattered all over the world? Maybe there could be an application for a message to the millions who have never heard the message of salvation.  Tweet for Christ!
